Well-known brand name; affordable price point; reliable ignition system; great accessories and features; made in North America: good warranty.
Things To Love:
Napoleon builds a nice freestanding gas grill with some innovative accessories and storage features. The Prestige series is available with an infrared rear burner, rotisserie, and on the P500 an optional infrared “sizzle-zone” side burner. I love that when the side burner or ice bucket are not in use, the lid is flush giving you full access to the side shelf space. You can also add a charcoal tray or smoker tube giving you several different ways to cook. I also really like Napoleon’s doubled lined “lift-ease” lid, which opens easily and helps hold in heat for oven like cooking. The lid is hinged near the middle, and when open adds hardly any depth to the back of the grill allowing for easy placement in a variety of spaces. The Prestige is also stylish as the P500 model is available with a stainless finish, black porcelain coated, or blue porcelain coated lid to match a variety of outdoor spaces.
Napoleon Prestige grills have stainless steel tube burners that are lit by a "Jetfire" electronic ignition. The P500 comes with stainless steel grates both of which have a patented wave design that creates unique sear marks. To help spread the heat around, Napoleon has stainless steel sear plates, which protect the burners and also help reduce flare-ups.
The P500’s infrared “sizzle-zone” is a unique feature on this grill. It’s grate is adjustable, allowing you to place the grate lower to the burner for cooking with pots and pans as you would on a conventional side burner, or raise the grates to a higher position for searing meats like steak.
The warranty on the Prestige series is a standout in its class, having a lifetime warranty on the exterior housing, cooking grids, and porcelain enamel coated lid. Napoleon also boasts a 10 year + 5 warranty on their burners and flame tamers that provides replacement parts at a 50% of normal cost for 5 years after the 10 year warranty expires.
Thing To Consider:
While this grill is built tough, and backed by a strong warranty, Napoleon Prestige grills are not "all stainless steel", which is what many customers are shopping for nowadays. Along with the stainless steel components on the grill, you will also find cast aluminum and porcelain enameled steel components too, such as cart legs, back panels, etc.
You'll Like This Grill If:
You want a well-built gas grill for the money, made in North America and backed by a strong warranty from a reputable company.
